Disaster Management Course

This course has been designed to give a comprehensive overview of the infrastructure and practical application of the Airport Emergency Plan and Emergency Response Procedures used by the Airport in the event of a Major Disaster on or close to an Airport.All Aerodromes throughout the world have one thing in common, they are regulated and licenced by the Civil Aviation Authority of their country. These Authorities are guided by the Annexes of ICAO which are directly reflected in the Airport Safety Management System and Emergency Response Procedures. This course is based on the principle of theory into practice. We must have a plan but it is the experience of putting this plan into practice with all the unforeseen problems and various circumstances which can arise with a disaster unfolding in front of us which makes this discussion based course so valuable.

Learn the latest methodology and requirements for responding to an aircraft emergency at or around the airport. This course helps you to set up a coordinated response between the aircraft operator, airport authorities, ground service providers and state emergency response agencies. Our course is delivered in the UK by IATA Instructors with over 20 years’ experience providing these courses for various Airport Authorities worldwide. The cost of the course includes: -Comprehensive training materials provided on a personal pen drive -Full course handouts and regulatory material -Course certification on completion of the course -Hotel and accommodation including complimentary breakfast -Transport to and from Manchester or Liverpool Airport to the hotel -Complimentary delegate dinner one evening during the course

Aviation is one continuous team... let's train that way.
